chasing the soul

A Day in America

This is what writer's block looks like:
pale, quiet, without motion.  The key,
they say, is to write anyway, but words
have strange allegiances, they go wherever
they'll be used.
                Tonight, away from the streetlights,
a young girl will drop to her unstockinged knee
for less than twenty dollars.  Even in
dark, dripping places, money goes
wherever it wants.
